Wind power

Friday, May 15th there is a meeting on a new possible source of wind powered energy.  It is being held at Maui Arts and Cultural Center at 8:30 A.M.  The rumor has it that they are using long line kites. I don't know if this is true, but I'll post something about it after I go. Windsurfing has taught me the power of the wind and it is so abundant here in Maui, there is no excuse for not using it.  Over 90 percent of our electricity comes from imported oil, which makes us very unsustainable, and leaves us very vulnerable. I'll put up the report on it later this week. I jumped in the water a little yesterday on a 5.3.  I was very careful to not hurt the foot or get my head wet. Even though it's flatter then a lake here it still feels good to be out in the water.
